HWY SKILLS LAB: Performance

This two-day skills lab provides invaluable one-off workshops with Brisbane artists and practitioners, giving HWY artists and extended community an opportunity to upskill or learn something entirely new across four specific areas; voice, physical theatre, audition technique, and performance dramaturgy.

Make the most of the workshops on offer and commit to the entire package across two days, or partake in individual workshops at your leisure. These four 3-hour sessions will give you just the hit you’re after to flex some creative muscle or delve into unfamiliar, yet critical territory in 2018.

# 1: Audition Technique with Thomas Larkin
Wednesday 21 March, 10AM – 1PM
An art form in its own right, auditioning – whether it’s for television, film, or theatre - is an essential skill for any performing artist. Theatre and film actor, Thomas Larkin (Wider Earth – Dead Puppet Society, Romeo and Juliet – Queensland Theatre), will facilitate a workshop focused on working to your strengths as actors, interpreting text, choosing the perfect monologue, and making the most of your audition during the casting process.

#2:  Physical Theatre with Joseph Simons
Wednesday 21 March, 2 – 5PM
Led by local dance-theatre artist, Joseph Simons, this skills lab is a unique opportunity for performers of all skill levels to experience a taste of Simons’ breadth of dance-theatre knowledge. Focusing on a physical approach to generating collaborative physical theatre, informed by his time as an ensemble member with Lloyd Newson’s DV8, Simons will provoke participants to explore social politics, sexuality, and interpersonal relationships through movement. 

# 3: Stage Combat with N-J Price
Thursday 22 March, 10AM – 1PM
Actor and fight choreographer extraordinaire, Niki-J Price (An Octoroon, Single Asian Female, Black Diggers), will run a Stage Combat workshop for performers of all skill levels, focusing on the fundamentals of stage combat. A critical skill for every actor, this workshop will guide you through the basics of safe, technical, and exhilarating fight choreography for theatre. Slip on some active wear and get ready to get physical this HWY festival.

# 4: Dramaturgy with Saffron Benner 
Thursday 22 March, 2 - 5PM
This workshop is designed to ready you with ammunition to make your next creative project fire. Whether you’re battling with one idea or one too many, an idea that’s not working out like you thought, or you’re just not sure if it’s good to begin with – this is the workshop for you. Designed for both experienced and inexperienced writers and devisors, participants will have the opportunity to share and develop their idea/s in an atmosphere of trust, confidentiality, collaboration, and rigour with professional dramaturg and arts educator, Saffron Benner.
